Hello football fans! Welcome to Week 8 of the NFL season!

It’s been quite a season, with our first tie of the year! The Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals couldn’t decide which team wanted to win. Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro missed a 24-yard field goal, and Seahawks kicker Stephen Hauschka followed that with a missed 28-yarder.

Regardless, both teams will have at least one tie under their name this year. Here’s hoping it doesn’t turn into a trend for both.

In other news, no undefeated teams remain. The Philadelphia Eagles put a stop to the Minnesota Vikings 21-10. It appears the 1972 Miami Dolphins will have to wait for next year if any team can run the table.

I went 10-5 for Week 7, bringing my total to 59-48 for the season. Ties count as losses when you make picks. It’s simple: if your team doesn’t win, you still get the big L. Here’s a recap of what I got right and wrong:

 Thu Oct 20 8:25 pm  Chicago Bears  Green Bay Packers
 Sun Oct 23 9:30 am  New York Giants  Los Angeles Rams
1:00 pm  Baltimore Ravens X  New York Jets
1:00 pm  Buffalo Bills  Miami Dolphins
1:00 pm  Cleveland Browns  Cincinnati Bengals (s.o.)
1:00 pm  Indianapolis Colts  Tennessee Titans X
1:00 pm  Minnesota Vikings X  Philadelphia Eagles
1:00 pm  New Orleans Saints  Kansas City Chiefs
1:00 pm  Oakland Raiders  Jacksonville Jaguars
1:00 pm  Washington Redskins  Detroit Lions
4:05 pm  San Diego Chargers  Atlanta Falcons X
4:05 pm  Tampa Bay Buccaneers  San Francisco 49ers
4:25 pm  New England Patriots  Pittsburgh Steelers
8:30 pm  Seattle Seahawks  Arizona Cardinals X
 Mon Oct 24 8:30 pm  Houston Texans  Denver Broncos

Here are my picks for this week. Taking a bye for this week will be the Giants, Rams, Ravens, Steelers, Dolphins and the 49ers. Remember, the s.o. stands for the shutout pick:

 Thu Oct 27 8:25 pm  Jacksonville Jaguars  Tennessee Titans
 Sun Oct 30 9:30 am  Washington Redskins  Cincinnati Bengals
1:00 pm  Detroit Lions  Houston Texans
1:00 pm  Green Bay Packers  Atlanta Falcons
1:00 pm  Kansas City Chiefs  Indianapolis Colts
1:00 pm  New England Patriots  Buffalo Bills
1:00 pm  New York Jets  Cleveland Browns
1:00 pm  Oakland Raiders  Tampa Bay Buccaneers (s.o.)
1:00 pm  Seattle Seahawks  New Orleans Saints
4:05 pm  San Diego Chargers  Denver Broncos
4:25 pm  Arizona Cardinals  Carolina Panthers
8:30 pm  Philadelphia Eagles  Dallas Cowboys
 Mon Oct 31 8:30 pm  Minnesota Vikings  Chicago Bears

Keep in mind all times and games are subject to change. Good luck to all teams and those who are also making picks as well.
